Minonokuni Raku Super Tsuchime 180mm Gyuto

We are proud to offer works of Japan's Minonokuni Blacksmiths. The Raku series (Aogami Super Blue Steel). In Japan Raku means "being happy" as well as "being easy (to maintain)." In other words they would like you to imagine a person who cooks happily using a hocho that is sharp and easy to maintain due its superior steel. This 180 mm. (7.1in.) Gyuto is an exceptional all purpose knife from finely filleting fish to chopping a bushel of carrots this Gyuto will do it with ease. The rounded handles on Japanese Gyuto's make working easier as the knife can gently spin and move in your palm. A handforged Gyuto of this size is hard to come by making this a rare handmade product of Japan. The Super Blue Steel used in this Raku Gyuto is known for holding a fine edge for much longer than competitive steel types and is easy to reshapen. Some knives use very hard steel types that hold an edge for a good while, but hard steels can be very hard to resharpen. This is not the case with Super Blue which responds very well to ceramics and whetstones. These incredibly unique Hochos are forged by experienced Japanese Blacksmiths using the best blade and handle materials available.
